Quick Looks

Manufacturer: Red Iron Models
Name: Soviet Sputnik 3 Satellite
Scale: 1:35
Kit contents: 7 resin parts
32 photoetched parts
resin base
Comments: The resin parts are solid with crisply molded details and no visible airholes. All parts will need to be removed from their pour plugs. The resin parts are identified by numbers molded into the pour plugs, while the photoetched parts are identified by numbers etched next to the part. There are two sizes of wire included: the larger diameter wire is to be used to mount the model to the included stand. The small diameter wire needs to be straightened and cut to represent various antennae. The photoetched parts include other antennae and the thermal control louvers. The instruction sheet consists of a series of exploded assembly drawings with text callout in English and Russian. No painting guide is included, but the overall color should be silver.
